about

Altered Revelations Los Angeles, California

Altered Revelations is a band centered around the premise of making cinematic heavy music. All of our songs are written to tell a story and put the listener into an atmosphere that more resembles a movie score than just a song.

We are a three piece, and all three of us are multi-instrumental. Thank you for giving us your time!

Track Name: The Architect
For the victims, The outlaws, The killers and the murdered
Psychotic, Destructive, Abandoned and the Suffered
There is one speaking words for all, The Architect, The Architect
Blood runs black the ink of time itself, There’s no escape once he’s entered this realm
Rewriting the book, creating the art, Dictating who we are
This world’s is a canvas, his madness bestowed, So dance cause you’re part of the show, Oh
Commandeer your heart, Fill the silence
Evolve
Commandeer your mind, Taking over your life
He’s alive
Track Name: Chains Of Tyranny
Bow before me I'm your king

I'm going to war, I’ll conquer everything
(Embrace your final night of peace at dawn, we will make them bleed)
Darling please, Don’t let go, Don’t let go of me tonight
May not return this time, I won't leave you behind

Compelled we stand and fight, In the absolute face of evil
My soul is spared tonight, For the gods will set me free

(Storms rage) Lighting is the only sight for warriors
(Men pray) Showing fear as all they hear are screams
(The slain) Blood is on the battleground, Spilling from the bodies that failed to survive
We are losing this fight

Compelled we stand and fight, In the absolute face of evil
My soul is spared tonight, For the gods will set me free

Our numbers start to falter, This war is ending
My pride slashed down to nothing, You stand above me
I will not surrender, You won't take that final swing
I'll never accept defeat, I’d sooner look up to the gods, To the gods proclaim
Ares!

Bow before me I'm your king, Bow before me I'm your king
I'm the God of War, I’m the God of War
And now this land is mine to bleed

Condemned I fall tonight, As I realize the true evil
My soul is torn tonight, For the Gods have betrayed me
Track Name: Shadow Cell
Get up, The city's fallen
Bathing in flames, Got to get out
There's nothing left now, Evacuate this

Nightmare, A refugee
Shipped off to a land that was said to be free
Criminal, Is what he'd be
Fighting to reclaim his identity

Sometimes life is hard to swallow, The bitter taste of decisions made
Left his mother land to follow, A promised better path
Only to be

Stripped of his rights, Left with no home
Forced out of sight, Weak and alone
To the shadows, He had to go

Broken man, A witness of the end
A second chance, Second chance Won't lose it all again
This time he walks on his own past the lost and the weak
Destined to beat this world alone

(Silent, compliant)
Running with the crowd with his eyes on the master plan
(Patiently waiting)
Never losing sight of the power he once had
Fall in line until the time comes to strip off his mask
Attack

Former kings they, Couldn’t fight
They never saw the, Edge of the knife
Hate in his eyes, Time for the rise
Oh

Standing above what used to be, With no remorse and complete lack of sympathy
Scars of the past fade from his face, Now the man once caught in fire holds the flame

Wage war

Loyalty it never meant a fucking thing, Fight until their blood is running through the streets
So many die for just a glimpse at the top of the world
(Of a world destroyed)
So fight

Former kings slain (x3)
Former kings

Never came to be a victim, Never claimed a righteous vision

Ruthless man, A bringer of the end
A second chance, Second chance Won't lose it all again
This time he walks on his own past the lost and the weak
Destined to beat this world alone

Get up, The city's fallen
Bathing in flames, Got to go
Track Name: Snakebites and Steel
We've finally changed our fate
I thought I was finally safe

But trouble keeps following me, Trust no one, When everyone sees
I feel the knife heading straight for my back, And I have no choice but to attack
You weave a web of lies, I can see it in the way you're staring
You want to take what's mine, So it looks like you're the one that I'm tearing down

And at the end of the day, I find myself so paranoid
When nobody's a victim but everyone's to blame
I guess it's just the price that we pay
And I can't deny, It’s all in my mind
But they chose to play, So now it's just the price that we pay
You won’t, You won't take this from me

One by one I clean up the mess, till there's nothing left
(There's nothing left)
We may have chosen this road together but this time I'd rather walk alone
But they all know what I've done
I try to run, I try to find my place
(Dear god)
Nowhere is safe when everywhere I look, I see my face
It never ends, It never ends
It never ends, I don't think I
I will survive, through the night
Through the night, I can't breathe

And at the end of the day, I find myself so paranoid
When nobody's a victim but everyone's to blame
I guess it's just the price that we pay, And I can't deny
It's all in my mind, But they chose to play
(So now is just the price to pay)

So now it’s time to pay
I can't deny that in my heart I know the truth
But who can say that I'm insane if there's no you
I've seen the fire in your eyes and that's the proof
I need to make that sacrifice

You won't take this from me, No choice
I will fight, With my life
You still don't seem to understand
It's not about the prize, I’m trying to survive

Hahahaha.... it's quiet

"Lock him up, Lock him up
He's run long enough"

"You stand before me with your hands up, Asking I forgive what you've done
I won't hear another word, Guilty”

And at the end of the day, I find myself so paranoid
When nobody's a victim but everyone's to blame
I guess it's just the price that we pay, And I can't deny
It's all in my mind, But they chose to play
So now it's just the price that we pay
Track Name: The Outlaw's Vow
If the lord's a'listening to the prayers of mercy rampant in this world of sin
Ears will ring as I carve a path of malicious intent to your doorstep

You stole from me, You destroyed me
Put his life in yours hands and you snuffed it out
My son took the fall that was meant for you , His name etched in your grave

My world's gonna crash on me till there's nothing left
I can't look past this
Now my heart is shackled by your worst of sins
The chain connecting straight to you

I will dig, My soul with his right back into the dust
And I can't leave, This hole's too deep and there's room for more than us
Ashes, Ashes will lay across this earth
As I burn a path, till it's smooth as glass, Engulfing you in hurt
Your name is on my spade

Loyalty to your fellow man, False creeds make for a fragile band
The outlaw tools of your cold steel trade, Your men will know my barrel, my blade
One by one they will leave your life, My vicious questions crush their bite
I'll do to yours what you did to mine, And then you'll see why justice blinds

And your world's gonna crash on you till there's no one left, You can't look past me
Now my heart is shackled by your worst of sins, The chain has pulled me straight to you

I will dig, My soul with his right back into the dust
And I can't leave, This hole's too deep and there's room for more than us
Ashes, Ashes will lay across this earth
As I burn a path, till it's smooth as glass, Engulfing you in hurt
Now it's your turn

Only one thing left to learn, Your road has come to an end
As I drag you to your bed, I’ve made sure you've lost it all
Only six feet left to fall, My revolver's found it's mark
Now say your final prayer for peace, Before I set us free

Cast your stones, To break my bones
Tie my limbs to the prison poles, Condemn me now for what I've done
Nobody can wash off vengeance blood

As I march the dead man's walk, I embrace my punishment
Cursed, condemned by the angry mob, But I feel none of it
Last steps to the stairs, My final climb and then
Hang the noose around my neck, My gateway to heaven

Final words, I have none, I’ve said what I came to say
Now I'll stare at the setting sun, As you end my final day

Don't mourn my soul, Just contemplate my ending
The body grows cold but, My death is not a tragedy
The rage is gone, No longer fueling my heart beat
Committing my last wrong, That trigger is what set me free
Set me free
Track Name: Clowstrophobia
Dust unsettled by the ravaged, Conjuring a world of madness
Our facade, a great distraction, Play once and it's everlasting
The time has come to cap the evening, Feel the chill creep through your bones
Good times you grasp may be deceiving, Arrived as guests but now you're home

Can you hear me calling, I see you want it
You and all your friends, Won’t you come in
Dusk brings our park to life, I see you enjoy it
I watch you hide, I watch you seek
Mind if I join in

The time has come to cap the evening, Feel the chill creep through your bones
Lights go dim and as I chuckle, Realize you're not alone
The blood runs down the carousel, My hatchet digs into a skull
Thrown from the ferris wheel, Screaming echoes to the floor
The pretty ones, you always run
I throw you down, you know you're done
My knife caresses teary cheeks
Your throat so thin, scared breath so sweet
And I won't let you go

Run from me, Run for your lives
Flee the madhouse , You can't stop your soul's compromise
(I've touched it now you're mine)
And when you think you've escaped from my sight, Go to sleep
I'll see you in your dreams tonight
Ahahahaha

Oh now you're free at least that's what you think
I guess you'll see what you want to believe in this world
(Can't close your eyes without seeing my face)
You’re taken from this world, Yeah
(I'll haunt your dreams til the end of your days)

Run from me, Run for your lives
Flee the madhouse , You can't stop your soul's compromise
(I've touched it now you're mine)
And when you think you've escaped from my sight, Go to sleep
I'll see you in your dreams tonight

As you try to find a shred of hope within this place
Brought new life into this world but what makes him, What makes him
Talk to the walls in the dead of the night, And why does he hide from the light
These questions, Never seemed quite right
Close your eyes, no sight
Hold your breath, don't fight
He’ll take your breath tonight
The time has come to cap the evening…

Wake from the spray of blood, Crimson red splatter
Draining life from the cut in his neck
Scream til your lungs are numb, Scramble from the mess
See the knife, see the child, Know that you're next
You could put him in his grave
You birthed this little demon now it's time to take the life you gave but
A mother's love can't be overthrown
You left your will to live next to your husband's open skull

Some choose to pray at the end of their days, but not you
Lost all faith, left with no one to turn to
My mouth splits into an infinite smile, Can’t help but laugh at the knife in your back
The time has come
